MIAMI (CBS4) — The Cuban-American National Foundation will feature discussions from experts on nonviolent political struggles and the use of technology to promote social activism at its 30th annual congress this weekend.

The group was founded in 1981 by the late Cuban-American kingmaker Jorge Mas Canosa. It will feature a series of panels during its all-day conference Saturday at the Key Biscayne Ritz Carlton-Hotel that includes a former Serbian lawmaker who co-founded the international Center for Applied Non-Violent Actions and Strategies.

The executive director of the Albert Einstein institution Jamila Raqib will speak about recent events in the Middle East. Also expected to speak are opponents of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. And a panel of top Cuban dissidents have sent videos and are expected participate by phone.

    How about they discuss the corruption going on here in Miami with Cuban politics and politicians.

    …and how about bailing out on their own country in favor of coming over to the U.S. to annoy Americans with this kind of nonsense.

    They’re still Cubans; not really good enough to be called Americans. Not really good enough to be called Serbians or Einsteinians either.
